A Tribute to Dad’s Dodgers

Dodgers 1955

 

by Steve Krevisky

IT WAS 60 YEARS AGO TODAY, THAT THE BROOKLYN DODGERS WON THEIR ONLY CHAMPIONSHIP WHILE STILL IN BROOKLYN,

A POEM COMMEMORATING THIS SPECIAL EVENT, FOR MY DAD’S TEAM!

 

DOOK COULD HIT ‘EM FAR AND WIDE

SO COULD GIL, RIGHT BY HIS SIDE!

CAMPY CAUGHT BEHIND THE PLATE

JACKIE STOLE; IT WAS REALLY GREAT!

SKOONJ COULD THROW-OH WHAT A RIFLE!

OISK COULD HURL ‘EM-NOT A TRIFLE!

NEWK COULD HUM THAT MIGHTY PEA

CLEM COULD START, AS WELL AS RELIEVE

PEE WEE GOBBLED ‘EM UP AT SHORT

SANDY’S CATCH-A RALLY ABORT

THEIR TIME HAD COME IN ’55!

NEXT YEAR HAD COME-THEIR HOPES ALIVE!
